On July 1, 2013, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, launched a new fundraising campaign, The Future Is Now, with the goal of raising $200 million over the course of three years. As we near the end of this first year, we are very pleased to share a progress report with the broader Museum family.
CHRISTRAUD GEARY: Now if you look at the Portuguese soldier, there are certain details that I don’t want you to miss. One is that everything is articulated in the greatest detail. Look at his hands, they’re beautifully done, and look at the fact that you can see his fingernails, even. Look at his feet, same thing, they’re beautifully executed.
The Artist Project is a collaboration between the MFA and twelve after-school community organizations in the Boston area. The artist and the children create a collaborative work of art inspired by the Museum's encyclopedic collection.
